All I can seem to think today is, "I want life to just be simple." It's the way it seems to keep pushing from my thoughts while quite a few feelings and situations roll within my heart and mind. It's exhausting just trying to contemplate how to get it all out into words. The world … Continue reading My Expectations of This Life.
Happy Mother's Day Mother's Day comes with a range of emotions for the whole spectrum of us. I pray for those that approach each Mother's Day with sorrow and anxiety due to loss, hard life circumstances, infertility, etc. The more I live this life the more I see the hardships that we as humanity walk … Continue reading Mother’s Day Letter to My Children
What you don't realize when you are reading one of these things from me is that before I even started there were minutes and hours of thinking and trying to figure out where I was going to start and how everything would get put together. I have wanted so much to sit and write over … Continue reading Processing Change.

I'm sorry if these last few pieces have been a bit deeper. I hope you're up for it, but honestly if you aren't then it's truly ok. Read what you need today and skip mine. I'm not hurt or offended. This isn't for everyone. I've tried to sit down and write cheery little articles that … Continue reading Laughing at the Future…
This morning as I was gathering my little guy's bag and couple of toys to head out to the sitters my hubby called to me from down the hall; "See you later, super mom!" I laughed as my entire body sort of slouched into a relief/shucks maneuver. Today out of all days. It's funny how … Continue reading It’s not all on you, friend.
It's so funny. In my short few years of coaching and teaching people personal finance it's amazing the patterns and issues you start noticing (quickly) over and over. I can give you the numbers, show you the statistics, tell you the countless stories I've witnessed already, and share with you my own testimony... but I … Continue reading The 6 letter “B” word…
When you think of adulting unfortunately you often think of all of the responsibilities that weigh you down from being able to do the things we'd rather be doing. I have to get up and go to work in the morning. I have to get that paper done by Tuesday. I have to do my laundry. … Continue reading This is my Life.
